Jasmine and I live at The New Harbour House (read above or http://www.thenewharbourhouse.com) in beautiful Bal Harbour. The natural surroundings, with direct ocean views, over a 1-mile palm tree-lined promenade toward Surfside, the next village to the south, is inspirational, invigorating, and tranquilising. Surfside has nice shopping and casual dining. The famous ``Bal Harbour Shops`` with its up-market bistros and restaurants are in walking distance. Aventura Mall is a 10-minute drive and South Beach, 20-minutes. You can ride a bicycle all the way along a 10-mile scenic path to Lincoln Road, Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive, and South Pointe. Both Miami International (MIA) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) airports are an easy 30-minute drive from where we live.
There's a nude beach (Haulover Park) in Sunny Isles, which is just over the bridge from Bal Harbour. Nearby Fort Lauderdale has gay-friendly neighbourhoods such as Emerald Hills and Wilton Manors. Downtown Fort Lauderdale has up-market dining and shopping on Las Olas Boulevard and Lauderdale Beach is 20 miles long. A large, Las Vegas-type casino/entertainment/shopping complex -- The Seminole Hard Rock Café -- is 20 minutes away. That is, on the way to an enormous outlet shopping centre, Sawgrass Mills, which is a 30-minute drive from where we live (just 10 minutes from Hard Rock). Sawgrass Mills also encompasses the luxury shops of the Colonnade.
